    Amazing Venue

    Beautiful venue and great staff! Courtney and Amy were excellent in responding to us with any questions and concerns and we were there to be of any assistance with any venue related needs on the wedding day. We rented for two days and were able to set up the venue Friday and do the rehearsal dinner that night. The back deck has beautiful views of the pagan river and it made for a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony.

    Amazing location & value

    Nice, open & spacious area inside - perfect for reception. We had the ceremony on the deck with one of their suites as a back up plan for rain. They let us use their ficus trees that had lights in them. Agreeable, knowledgable & flexible employees.

    I had 14 guest tables, plus the bridal party tables, a buffet line, DJ station on their stage, plus a cake table.

    They have a lot to offer for rental, outside of the rental price for the whole venue.

    My reception was at Smithfield Center and I LOVED it. The first time I took a tour I knew I wanted my wedding there. The reception room has a deck on the back overlooking the water that is beautiful and it is very spacious. You can choose to have your ceremony on the deck but I chose to have it at Windsor Castle Park which is only a mile from the center and you also reserve that through the Smithfield Center. I worked with Amy and she was so easy to work with and always put my mind at ease with all my concerns. I highly recommend the Smithfield Center and Windsor Castle Park especially if you are having a rustic wedding : )

As someone who works at different venues every weekend, take my word that a helpful, supportive, knowledgeable staff is worth its weight in gold and these people are nothing short of awesome! Reserve the Smithfield Center today, you will not be sorry!
